Shabby techniques and lots of texture from Carol!

Good morning!

It's Friday the 13th - are you scared?  

It might be unlucky for some but it is most definitely lucky for us because we have a fab guest post from a previous Top 3 winner today - Carol Gill of Crafty-Stamper...



Hi I am Carol and have been crafting quite for many years knitting, crotchet, cake making and decorating and now card making. I started stamping but as I am now on some Design Teams digis are my passion and have just recently started experimenting with dies and embossing folders. I am delighted to have been chosen to a Guest designer with Country View challenges.


I used my new texture EF from Crafters Companion on silver mirri card , TH blueprint EF , my new Distress stains from Tim Holtz - brushed pewter and tarnished brass and finally Tattered lace die cut bottle.  I made a secret card fold where the front piece lifts off to show the verse inside.



What a great 65th card, fabulous textures, a great mix of brands and most definitely a winner - thank you Carol!

Have you got something you'd like to share?  If you have, please join in by linking your project HERE.  As well as awarding TWO £20 shop vouchers this month we will also be giving away some blog candy to one lucky commenter from our March launch post!

Remember the old adage - you've got to be in it to win it!  >;o)

Gabrielle will be back on Sunday with another make in her wonderfully inimitable style - see you then.  >:o)

Have a great weekend!
